  • A gang of thieves are stealing Marine equipment. Can Gomer stop them?

    A gang of thieves are stealing marine equipment. Gomer quards his post. Funny scenes are next, as Gomer calls Sqt. Carter to his post only to find such things as a rabbit and his own shadow. A frustrated Sqt.Carter instructs Pyle to stop calling him to his post. A man comes to the post, and Gomer does not call Sqt. Carter over to the post. The man(investigator Johnson)has to call Sqt. Carter to the post. When Sqt. Carter admits he gave orders to Pyle to not call him, the by now frustrated Johnson replies "what kind of knucklehead order was that". Ver funny to see Sqt. Carter on the receiving end of "knucklehead". Gomer is fooled into helping the crooks load a truck, but Gomer ends up capturing them in the end, and graciously give the dazed Sqt.Carter(knocked out twice) all the credit. This episode is well written, and features classic exchanges from Sqt. Carter and Gomer. I would rate this a classic episode.
